  1. Easy as Pi is my favorite cache I have found. It is a premium only cache and My wife and I found it with my son we all dropped our jaws when we put one and one together. Bear in the Woods is equally amazing tough call for me.
  2. Snake encounters of the scary type

    Ran into this sucker in The Woodlands just about 6 inches above a cache. The scary thing is i did not notice him/her until i placed the cache back in its original location.
  3. If it is a Highway here s the link http://www.dot.state.tx.us/trv/aah/ Here is for Harris County parks I think this one is cool http://www.hcp4.net/jones/vols/adopt_a_trail.htm
  4. Caching on business trip in Houston

    Everyone is going to have their opinion on where to shop for computers. Right now Best Buy has that model on sale. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+13.3%22+Laptop+-+4GB+Memory+-+500GB+Hard+Drive+-+Radiant+Silver/6869475.p?id=1218810051214&skuId=6869475&ref=06&loc=01&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=6869475&extensionType={adtype}:{network}&s_kwcid=PTC!pla!{keyword}!{matchtype}!{adwords_producttargetid}!{network}!{ifmobile:M}!{creative} You are going to look to pay about 8% in tax here in Houston. I would not expect there to be any great deals in June but there will be some sales because of all the High School Graduations. I worked in Electronics retail for some time and can tell you from experience the best month to buy a laptop price wise is August due to the back to school sales. But all summer there will be some kind of sale going on. I am not sure on how shopping is in Denmark but here in Houston be prepared for the salesman trying to add on a lot of accessories and warranties because that is where the profit margin is. In some cases a store will make more money off of the USB cable than the laptop. Here in Houston I would shop at Fry's, Best Buy, and Microcenter.
  5. Keep Jones Beautiful II and Herman Little Park Cito

    Pretty Sure I will be at Herman Little with the dog and kid
  6. Longest since last find

    Is it me or does a majority of these seem to be on the south side of town?
  7. Cool topic I contacted the owner of a cache a couple of months back and offered to replace the caches because he was no longer active. http://coord.info/GC22WD3 and http://coord.info/GC22WDJ My sons cub scout den made the replacements and placed them in the area. He then contacted us and asked if we could just adopt the caches but has since stopped the communications. I know number wise I am new to caching with only about 170 finds but do you see a lot of people with less than 10 finds put out caches and then just forget about them? Sorry if I hijacked the tread a little.
  8. Saw this article... http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/The-Mystery-of-the-Tiny-Door-in-a-Tree-200540021.html It looks like it could have been geocahce that has been discovered by muggles. here is the map from the article. Here is the GEOCAHCES in the area...a couple of puzzles It also could be archived due to muggles... Just a thought on a slow day at work........
  9. Houston GeoCaching Society Geocoins

    I would be interested in a couple
  10. Found a missing cache....question?

    Whoops downstream.....but I have meet somepeople in the woodlands who would tell you they can make water go upstream.
  11. Found a missing cache....question?

    Thanks for the great caches that led us to this location. I did mark it as a find after all it was found. I am going to go look at the location is was at and use common sense when replacing it.
  12. Found a missing cache....question?

    You did call it a regular Nostradamus of the caching world. I am going to let it dry repair the cache and attempt to place it back in a spot close to the original location as I can...paying attention to it not getting washed away this time if possible.
  13. Yesterday my daughter and I were out hunting for some of the new caches in the woodlands that had popped up in the last week. We had a great time finding the Got Artifact series and were headed to the got Animal series off of Gosling. Instead of walking back to the car we decided to bushwhack it. We had to cross the creek and after walking up and down the creek we found a spot that a tree had fallen perfectly over it. While crossing the creek I spotted this container out of the corner of my eyes. I took out the IPhone and searched but there was no geocache hidden at this spot. The container had hooked itself to the fallen tree so my first thought was it was attached to the tree when it fell down. When I get home I take the log out and let it dry. I can just make out Team Trog with a find date of 8-27-12 so I go and look up the date in his logs (thanks to CARMOPAL for the tip) and discover that this cache had traveled about 2.5 miles upstream. The person who placed the cache has not been very active so I wrote them a note and left one on the cache as well. Does this count as a find?
  14. My son's cub scout pack had a great camp out this weekend at this cool park. For those of you who have never been to this one it is a great camping destination with lots of trails and wildlife. We set out two new caches as well as adopted and repaired two others. There is a ton of things to do at the park the only down side is there is a 3 dollar per day use fee to walk the trails. But if you are into camping you can get a great site for only 7 dollars or rent a whole area with 8 campsites for only 40 dollars a night.
